Handmade gift bags are easy to make, and you can create them from many materials. You can even use recycled supplies to make very nice looking bags.
Taking the time to craft a gift bag shows the recipient how much you care, and once you learn the basics, you can really create one quickly.
Since gift bags can usually be folded, you can make a supply of them in different sizes when you have time, and they will be ready when you need one.
My favorite kind of small gift bags are those you can make from envelopes. There are so many ways you can cut, fold, and decorate them, and they are fun to use.
Another kind of handmade gift bags I really like is one made from a brown paper bag. These are easy to decorate for any birthday or holiday, and you can use almost anything to embellish them.
Envelope gift bags are easy to make and perfect for small gifts.
